Private Class Sneak Peak!

Hi everyone, this is Kat. We've had a fantastic week at Otion complete with sunshine and two days of private "Design Your Own Day" instruction. I had the pleasure of teaching a couple classes and wanted to share with you some of the colorful melt-and-pour projects we made on Wednesday.

We used the scraps from our plaid project to embed into a swirled loaf for our final project. I love how it turned out! The embedded eraser soaps were made with a clear base and a double and triple-pour technique. Simply wait until your colored soap has cooled a bit (that phase right before it gets too hard to pour), and pour each color on opposite ends of the mold until they meet in the middle. The soap is thick enough to stay in place without swirling together.

Anne-Marie has made a great tutorial on plaid soaps. You can find it here. You can also purchase a plaid soap online video tutorial here.

Thanks for taking a look and have a great weekend!

  5. Thanks everyone!! It was lots of fun. Amy, I used fuchsia labcolor for the hibiscus on the flip flops. It only takes a drop or two for super vibrant color.
